Amazon Is Increasing Monthly Prime Membership Price


I may be one of the few people that don't have an Amazon Prime Account, but I've heard that I really need to have one. 

Your monthly Amazon Prime membership price will increase to $12.99! 

The price increase takes effect immediately for new members, and on February 19 for existing members.

The cost of a yearly Prime subscription will remain the same - $99, or $49 for students.

Amazon's Prime program for students is increasing from $5.49 to $6.49. 

The standalone Prime Video membership, which does not include shipping benefits, will remain at $8.99.
